STMicroelectronics , which has provided radio receiver chipsets for Sirius Satellite Radio since 2004, will provide the digital broadcasting chipset for Sirius Backseat TV, STMicroelectronics announced June 28.

The core of the video receiver, which is being manufactured by Delphi, is based on three ST chips: the STA210 RF tuner IC; the STA240 channel, service and source decoder IC; and the STA264 demodulator chip, which extracts the video stream and performs error correction.

Sirius Backseat TV service is scheduled to be launched later this year in certain Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles.
